Front brakes are simple, back brakes are a little harder. What you need is a C-clamp and some metric open ended wrenches. Lift the car and the hood, remove the tire, and open the cover on the brake fluid reservoir. Disengage the parking brake if back brakes are hydrolic. Loosen the 2 bolts that hold the caliper on and remove both pads. Compress piston with C-Clamp. If 2 piston, use a piece of wood or something that you can apply even pressure to both pistons. Be careful not to fracture the piston or rubber seal. Just be extra cautious when collapsing piston. Use a towel or anything to absorb the metal to metal force. Insert the new brake pads applying a small amount of blue grease to the back of the pad first.
Install assembled caliper. Repeat for second front. The back brakes, if drum, require more parts to pull apart. My suggestion is to lift the whole back of the car. Remove both drums, might be tough, loosen adjuster gear and pull both brake pads off. Assemble compare to other side.
